. they know what -- hawhen obama was handed a deck of cards in 200 19, he stopped the bleed ago. >> sean: how are we better? >> we are only crowelling forward. >> we are better on jobs and national health care, we are better that -- we killed bin laden. >> lanny, lanny, this president, when they asked him what his grade was said he deserves an incomplete. >> the students who came in and asked for incomplete are the ones that knew they hadn't done anything all term, the one who is failed in their responsibility, the one who is didn't deliver what they were expected to deliver. and that respect, the president's right. he gets an incomplete because he's a failure. the only quick answer, john, is that barack obama's current unemployment level is disappointing for all of us. as a political issue, why is mitt romney not ahead of him in a single poll -- >> happening on. we have new poll numbers today-- >>> wait a minute. the approval rating of the president is 40%, the lowest popularity since 1980. we know what happened that year. he is 46-50 with women, upside down. and romney got a five-point boun
president obama says it will take a few more years. a few more years for the u.s. to solve its economic problems. tonight he will tout his so-called promises kept over the past four years at the democratic national convention. a celebration of failure. that's what mitt romney called it. did he keep his promises -- obama that is. why should his contract be renewed as president clinton said last evening. speaking about president clinton and his fine speech last night, tonight we have to take a look at something he said last evening. take a listen. >> when times are tough and people are frustrated, angry, hurting and uncertain, the politics of constant conflict may be good. but what is good politics does not necessarily work in the real world. unfortunately the faction that now dominates the republican party doesn't see it that way. they think government is always the enemy. they are always right and compromises weakness. >> it's good advice that the politics of cooperation are better than the politics of conflict. it has not happened under president obama in washington, d.c. which leads m

[ applause ] >> i want barack obama to be the next president of the united states, and i proudly nominate him to be the standard bearer of the democratic party. now, folks, in tampa a few days ago, we heard a lot of talk, all about how the president and the democrats don't really believe in free enterprise and individual initiative, how we want everybody to be dependent on the government, how bad we are for the economy. this republican narrative, its alternative universe says that every one of us in this room who amounts to anything, we're all completely self-made. one of the greatest chairmen the democratic party ever had, bob strauss, used to say that every politician wants every voter to believe he was born in a log cabin he built himself. but as strauss then admitted, it ain't so. we democrats, we think the country works better with a strong middle class, with real opportunities for poor folks to work their way into it, where the relentless focus on the future with business and g

. to reelect the president. >> in charlotte tonight, bill clinton nominates barack obama to serve a second term, appealing to voters who still think it's all about the economy. >> i hope i bring some credibility on what the most effective way to create jobs and bring america back is. >> these two democrats have been at odds in the past. but they're united in the battle to hold on to the white house. >> you're in good hands. >> look for clinton to fire up supporters tonight as he has before. but is there a risk he'll upstage the president? >> sit down! >> now, cnn turns the spotlight on one of the biggest platforms in american politics. this is the democratic national convention. this is the night delegates have their say. >> join with me, we will elect barack obama president of the united states of america. >> this is america's choice. >>> we'd like to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world to this, the democratic national convention in charlotte, north carolina. everyone here is waiting to hear what bill clinton will say about president obama tonight as well as his own t
to president obama, they just didn't say very much about the ideas they've offered over the last two years. they couldn't. because they want to go back to the same old policies that got us in trouble in the first place. they want to cut taxes for higher income americans even more than president bush did, get rid of the pesky financial regulations designed to preven another crash and prohibit future bailouts. they want to increase defense spending over a decade, $2 trillion more, than the pentagon has requested, without saying what they'll spend it on. and they want to make enormous cuts in the rest of the budget, especially programs that help the middle class and poor children. as another president once said, there they go again. >> a lot of references in his speech, both subtle and direct, former republican president, ronald reagan. president obama came out on stage. the two men shared a hug, a show of appreciation for a speech that may have gone a long way in helping obama's campaign. a lot to talk about. quick reactions from our panelists, in terms of the top takeaway for tonight? john?
. on this holiday to celebrate america's workers president obama finds himself in a struck to convince laborers that he deserves a second term. it seems some in his own party need convincing on one important question. chief white house correspondent ed henry is travelling with the president in new orleans. [ applause ] >> reporter: president obama top allies are damned if they say yes and damned if they say no to this fundamental question hanging over the democratic national conventio convention. >> can you honestly say that people are better off today than they were four years ago? >> no, but that is not the question of this election. the question without a doubt, we are not as well off as we were before george bush brought us the bush job losses, the bush recession, the bush deficit. >> reporter: after republican mitt romney campaign pounced on that, today, governor martin o'malley did a 180. >> we are clearly better off as country because we're now creating jobs rather than losing them. we have not recovered all that we lost. >> reporter: the problem compounded by the fact two top advisors t
's coming right at the top of the show. later, we find more about the debt negotiations that president obama had with the republicans. look at the contempt that john boehner had towards president obama. >> the only thing about the differences between the president and myself is i'm here smoking, drinking, here's the president of the united states drinking iced tea and champing on nicorettes. >> he's making fun of the president for drinking iced tea. what a weird weird set of circumstances and those are the guys you're supposed to be negotiating with? i can't wait to go off on that story. we have an exclusive with don the former governor of alabama about to go to jail, railroaded by karl rove. karl rove blamed them for it. >> i'm his daughter. i just wanted to meet you and say -- he cut me off right away and said tell your dad not to use my name to make money. >> crazy. all right. it's a big show, and it's go time. >> all right. it is the anniversary of 9/11 and i got a warning for you guys, i'm about to get angry about this story. it's about the negligence of the bush administration and what
michelle obama. chris matthews? >> certainly made the connection, don't you think? i mean, so much of tonight was interactive. it was between her and that audience in the room. i thought the camera work was so important watching this on television. you saw on the faces of men and women, black and white, all different backgrounds, the connection. she was with people. the emotional connection, telling the story of her love affair with her husband. with her life of getting ahead. but there was one big difference than four years ago which just came through in the earlier speeches tonight. it was hope and change, yes, hope and change but not hope and change imaginally overnight. but hope through work and patience and time and effort and then change. i think it was a much more mature look at their own lives as they got there. i'll tell you, i assume most americans watching tonight who have been lucky in this country, have gotten close to the american dream, have done it the way they did it. with student loans. with good parents who made them study. of being parents who make their kids st
-killing obama care nationalized medicine. record gas prices? a record number of americans on food stamps, doubling in the past four years to 47 million. this comes as a debt clock goes above the $16 trillion dollar mark. and the worst josh, an worst economy record in the post war era, back to 1947. so go ahead and celebrate, democrats. but as my mentor ronald reagan used to say -- >> ask yourself, are you better off than you were four years ago? is it easier for you to go and buy things in the stores than it was four years ago? is there more orless unemployment in the country than there was four years ago? >> well, i don't think so. and i don't think the democrats should be celebrating. that's just my opinion. we will debate. and also, a comment reportedly by bill clinton has everyone buzzing. quote, a few years ago this guy, meaning president obama, would have been carrying our bags. quite a distasteful comment. but ed klein, author of "the amateur" is our special guest on the whole clinton speech and the convention. the market down $55, the ism manufacturing index fell below 50 for the
obama's programs? all of them. mitt romney said last night he truly wished obama would have succeeded. i liked the sound of that, but how did that assertion square with romney's own personal decision to run against and plan to defeat president obama long before the president, this president, even took the oath of office. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. the "the ed show" with ed schultz starts right now. >>> good evening, americans. welcome to "the ed show" live from indianapolis. 67 days until the 2012 election and the fact free republican convention is all history now. and after three days of nonstop lies, tonight, i'm going to set the record straight. what is the truth? this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >>> unlike president obama, i will not raise taxes on the middle class of america. i have a plan to create 12 million new jobs. i will begin my presidency with a jobs tour. president obama began his presidency with an apology tour. >> the truth takes a beating in tampa. as the republican convention ends with another flurry of lies. will the romn
. a surprised expression of empathy and comprehension from president obama who said he understands why the muslim world has erupted in the demonstrations marked by all out american hatred. >> the natural protest that are because of the video were used as an excuse by extremists to see if they can also directly harm u.s. interests. lou: also surprising president obama declining to cease the opportunity to champion the americans right to free speech or address the relationship between the united states and the muslim world. we take all of that up here tonight with former u.s. ambassador to the united nations john bolton and robert maginnis and douglas holtz-eakin joins us and the author of the book ed klein. the obama administration still back the length over the handling of the september 11 terrorist attack in benghazi that killed three americans and the ambassador. the first terrorist attack on this president watch. ed henry with our report. >> another day. another version of exactly what went down in libya nearly two weeks ago. >> what happened in benghazi was a terrorist attack. >> t
disaffected democrats who may believe president obama's too far to the left. and president clinton is going to say no he's not. he's great as far as i'm concerned. and they all liked president clinton's economy. so he's going to say give him some more time. give him the patience he deserves because he'll get the job done. >> i'm told what bill clinton will say tonight is essentially i'm told it's a very active, very forceful defense of what president obama has done over the last four years. and it will be as well a comparison between the romney agenda and what president obama wants to do. >> bill clinton, he can energize a lot of the moderate democrats, a lot of the independents. he's still very popular out there. >> oh, absolutely. it's not just about the liberal wing asloria rightly mentions. it's also about what swing voters there are left, what moderates there are. it's really about the folks who think that barack obama didn't do enough and the folks who think that he did too much. once this is a man with appeal to both of those. >> he's going to say give him time to get the job done. >
-israel platform. you have to wonder why it happened in the first place. president obama as candidate in 2008, saying it was his personal belief jerusalem was and always will be the capital of israel. whose brilliant idea was to take it out of the platform? still a bit of a mystery today. nobody is saying who it might have been. watch this exchange between myself and dnc chairman debbie wasserman schultz last evening after that revote. why was it dropped in the first place? i understand clarification or the rewrite, whatever, why was that language 2kr07d in the first place? >> essentially like i said it was technical correction when we realized that needed clarification on president obama realized his personal view about jerusalem being israel's capital and always remaining israel's capital wasn't in the platform he made sure we took the pretty, at least in terms of recent history, a pretty unprecedented step of amending our platform in the middle of the convention. >> reporter: same thing with the word god being taken out of the platform. nobody could explain why that happened. debbie wasser
obama, another good night for them. >> affable, effective, as a democrat, it doesn't get any better. i'm sitting here, i'm giddy, i mean, this is exactly what barack obama needed. mending fences, bringing people together, understanding the facts. and i liked the way president clinton talked about the universe the republicans have painted president obama in, that they are not in reality, they are not in the real world. he even used the word "hate," and i'm glad he addressed this tonight, because you have to understand the climate before you can have the healing, and he also talked about a dysfunctional washington saying it doesn't have to be a blood sport and documented the kinds of things that he worked on with republicans and really in a roundabout way, gave the country hope that we can get together and we should be and it's a responsibility for elected officials to get to the point where they can work together. so, and, of course, he talked about philosophy, which i think is important about owning your own, you know, philosophy of owning your own health care, owning your own retireme
offshore. we have to offshore barack obama. he's got to go, send him to china to respect first what is a loss of vegas oddsmaker? >> someone that predicts the winners of sporting events and was kind of a natural outgrowth. i went to predicting the one of sporting events, football games, to the winners of political elections, and i think it was too close and for the conservative website said out of all of the oddsmakers and pendants and america of the one that got the most accurate prediction on the presidential election was wayne root. he won the 34 or 35 votes so i'm good at the instinctive with the american people are thinking. >> when you say instinct are you breaking these political odds down by county were looking at the electoral analysis, what are you doing? >> ayman people person the same reason i'm leaving my whole life predicting sporting events figuring out who has the image based on psychology and the situation of historical and based on whether the players are up or down psychologically and how they played last week based on next week i feel the same way about elections

president bill clinton's keynote address, coming up in just a moment. law student and obama supporter, sandra fluke will take to the stage. but that is being overshadowed by a bombshell reversal of the dnc platform as the party has re-inserted references to god and jerusalem. you may recall that earlier, delegates approved a platform that blatantly admitted such words. but fox news has confirmed that the president personally interceded to halt the proceedings and have the language reinstated. however, that task was far from easy because when the convention chair held a voice vote to authorize the amendment, he couldn't win over the two-thirds majority that he needed. watch this. >> all those delegates in favor, say aye. all those delegates opposed, say no. in the opinion of the -- let me do that again... all of those delegates... in favor say aye.

to do it. when president obama was elected, he had made a speech where he talked about america is part of the world, and he went to istanbul and cairo in his first year and talked about independence and the need to work together, and he was punished by the media and his own party, and the result is he talks mainly about america, we are number one, god bless america, and i do one god to bless america, but i want them to bless the whole world. the focus on the american exhibition where, first of all, every nation thinks it is exceptional. in switzerland, they talk about it, and in france, they talk about it that the french think similarly. and this does not mean that we are exceptional in the sense that we can solve problems by ourselves, that we can fix the things the way we did 100 years ago. thinking about immigration, there is nothing we can do. we cannot do that one nation at a time. even if we suddenly had all of the alternative energy and if we got off the petroleum teet and started using geothermal energy, 80% to 85% of the emissions come from other countries. we do these things
